1 Preheat oven to 400° F.

2 Take a strip of bacon and starting at one end, roll it up tightly to form a rosette. Feel free to stack two strips prior to rolling for an even heftier looking rose. Watch our video tutorial for further guidance.

3 Secure the bacon rose with two toothpicks to form a cross through the spiral as close to the bottom of one end as you can.

4 Space out the bacon roses on a wire rack on top of a foil lined baking sheet.

5 Brush bacon roses with maple syrup then sprinkle brown sugar and cracked black pepper.

6 Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes for the single-layered bacon rose and approximately 40 minutes for the double-layered rose.

7 Remove from oven, set aside and let cool.

8 Remove toothpicks carefully, making sure the roses maintain their form.

9 Place two basil leaves down under each bacon roses and place onto a plate or serving board.
